Well guys, I’ve got some good news. I get to appear on a few Salt Lake City Comic Con panels this week. Get to be on writing panels with James Dashner (Maze Runner), Brandon Mull (Fablehaven) and Aaron Johnston (Earth Unaware, Ender Series, writing w Orson Scott Card). Don’t worry, Chewbacca, Batman and Captain Kirk are all going to be there (the real ones!). Oh, and Darth Vader, Superman, and probably some scientists and Pullitzer Prize Winners.
